Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

Taurus X

  • 42,000 miles


I wanted to bring potential fire hazard safety recall to your attention. I own a 2008 Ford Taurus X with 42,000 miles on it the transmission fluid leaks from the passenger side driveshaft yolk (where the shaft enters the trans case). Car is in excellent condition never in accident. Trans fluid drips onto exhaust and then burns to a point of charring on the exhaust (I can send pictures). I have scheduled a service at my local Ford dealer (rt 23 Ford, butler, NJ). I hope they fix the problem, but since it is a fire hazard I had to share this detail with you in case a recall should be considered. The Taurus X is a seven passenger family car and I wouldn't want to see a tragedy if a $100 seal replacement can avoid the issue.
